    Good morning all,

    I'm looking to pick up a F113 A040 engine with Serial Number: 21388 from VIN: ZFFSG17AXJ0078362 and was wondering if anyone could point me to a direction to see if the engine is stolen, or if the pictures are harvested from another online sale etc.

    Any help is appreciated.

    I'd call these people first and ask, hey, did you sell this to someone in EU?

    Yeah, the engine definitely looks toasted on the ends.

    We must have different algos on Google lol; I searched high & low. Greatly appreciate the help guys! It's being sold as an engine fire take-out.

    19633500GT: you're an all-star on finding the listing. Really appreciate it.

    Result: ends up the engine I was looking at is a scam ad using pics from another site. Thank you for the help, I'm currently contracting in Afghanistan so my Google results are a bit different than what you guys sent me. Thanks again!
